Nanowrimo Anyone?

  • Nanowrimo (National Novel Writing Month) starts today - is anyone else joining as well? Want to be my ‘buddy’?

    This is my first year and I’m going to try to finish a Cinderella-twist Middle Grade that I’m currently about 10,000 words into. Hoping to find some friends on there to cheerlead for!

    My name on the Nanowrimo website is nek0nek0. (Those are zeros)

  • Yes! I'll try and find you! I haven't started yet, but I have things fairly planned out. Excited to see how it goes this year! I'm CayBerry on Nanowrimo.

  • @Cayleen Awesome! Added you 😁 I just have my plot basics written out, but not much of the meat figured out so we’ll see 😂 I’m hoping by doing that it’ll help my pantsing habits - at least I’ve got some goal marks to hit. I’ve got almost 10,000 words already but I reread them last night and there’s some major inconsistencies that I’d even forgotten I’d written! Hopefully if I get it out down within one month everything will be fresh in my mind and I won’t make so many wrong turns. Although, the majority of those 10,000 were just me feeling the story idea out. I have three different beginnings, all of which will probably get tossed 🤦🏻

  • I am attempting it for the first time. I’m writing a mid grade adventure story based on a one shot DND campaign I wrote for my 7 year old.

  • @Shawnna-Farrell awesome! It’s my first year too! I’d love to be buddies 😁 You can find me at nek0nek0 if you want to pal up. I’m not good at keeping up with these 30 day things so hoping being together with friends will help!

  • @VeronicaMui First draft is for yourself, right? I basically write a bunch of chaos the first round, like a rough sketch for a drawing. But I know it will get better when I revise it (next month) so I have to keep reminding myself to let go of perfection and just keep going, lol.

    Good luck!

  • @Cayleen you’re right about that! I haven’t deleted anything, but I wanted to at least make sure I knew the angle I wanted to come from. It’s been a few months since I’ve touched this manuscript. Trying to learn how to finish things 😂

  • @VeronicaMui buddy request sent. I’m S.L. Farrell

  • @Shawnna-Farrell accepted! Looks like you’re on a roll already - whoohoo!!! Great start 👏 👏
